  • Check out the RIFT 3.4: Into the Wilds Trailer video here!
  • As with every major patch, CM Morgana has posted up a “3.4 Known Issues” Thread. Be sure to check it out for any known bugs.

Additional Info:

Here’s a brief overview of major additions to the patch as well as a bunch of additional information not provided in the official patch notes.

  • Primalist Calling. New 5th calling ‘Primalist’ is now available either via The Wilds Pack or the Primalist Calling Pack on the RIFT Store under Services. Unlocks the first six available souls. 4 more will come out at a future date.
    • If you bought Primalist, you need to log out of the game, sign out of Glyph and then log back in for your new calling to appear in the create character window.
  • Planetouched Wilds. A new, massive zone to the right of Droughtlands has opened up with new lore, quests, puzzles and more! Check Achievements -> Zones -> RIFT -> Planetouched Wilds for all your achievement needs – are you ready to hunt those 160 rares?
    • Intro Quests. If you are Level 65, you should have received a mail from Rahn Chuluun with introduction quests to the Planetouched Wilds. You don’t have to do them though.
    • Just Walk In. You can just walk straight into the Planetouched Wilds from /setwaypoint 8020 5609 in Droughtlands.
    • About Wilds Quests. The main storyline of the Planetouched Wilds is split up into three parts: Act 1 available now; Act 2 available on Oct 21st; Act 3 available on Nov 4th.
    • Key Points of Interest.
      • Shal Korva Quartermaster. The new zone has a new notoriety “Shal Korva”. You can purchase a heirloom ring and new BiS seal runes from the Shal Korva Quartermaster at /setwaypoint 10315 5897.
      • Wilds Weekly Quests. There are 4 weekly quests obtainable in the Wilds. Be sure not to miss out as they reward NT marks! All four located at the top of the floating islands in Plain of the Ancestors at /setwaypoint 10113 4944.
  • Wilds Achievements. For those confused where the new achievements are for the Planetouched Wilds, they can be found under Achievements (default key “h“) -> Zones -> RIFT -> Planetouched Wilds.
  • Dancing Yeti Vendors. New ‘Dancing Yeti’ dual-use dimension items can be bought from the Far Travelling Merchants Jeffrey and Lucy in Meridian and Sanctum respectively. The Dancing items can be used in the open world or placed in your dimension. Other Dancing Partners are rewarded from completing Planetouched Wilds-related artifact sets.
  • Three New Artifact Types. There’s three new artifact types specific to the Planetouched Wilds: Poison, Burning and Nightmare.
    • You can see Poison artifacts as random chance when picking up normal artifacts. This gives you Poison Sight which also acts as a Damage-over-Time on you.
    • You can see Burning artifacts as random chance when picking up Poison artifacts. This gives you Burning Sight which also acts as a DoT.
    • You can see Nightmare artifacts as a random chance when picking up Burning artifacts. This gives you Nightmare Sight which also acts as a DoT.
    • All three DoTs can stack. Picking up Nightmare Artifacts gives random chance of all three Sights refreshing.
    • Also, the higher the rarity of the artifact you pick up, the higher the chances of receiving or refreshing one of the Sights.
    • Completing all sets of an artifact type will net you an achievement that rewards you with a special, animated Portrait Badge. You can check them out under Achievements -> Zones -> RIFT -> Planetouched Wilds.
  • Callweddi. Callweddi is an island located at the east coast of the Planetouched Wilds. There’s a puzzle on the island which begins a long journey towards accessing the ‘Callweddi Village’ area on top. The area provides access to a few vendors that sell a lot of dimension items, puzzle boxes, Life Lifter mount, Callweddi Ceremonial wardrobe and more! Dead Simon showed off the place here.
  • Rhaza’de Canyons Dungeon. The new Level 65 Expert Dungeon “Rhaza’de Canyons” is available under LFG -> Select Dungeon. It is scaled slightly higher than normal NT expert dungeons.
  • Assault on Bronze Tomb Warfront. A new warfront is out, introducing the new ‘assault’ mode. Switch between the Attacking and Defending as you try to take down the three rooms faster than the other team. There’s more information about the warfront from Trion’s two livestreams – summaries here and here.
  • PvP Knockback/Pull Change. Not mentioned in the patch notes, Trion added knockback effects to the pull/teleport-to-me cooldown group in terms of CC immunity. This means you will no longer be affected by both a pull and knockback one after the other. Full info and explanation from Vladd’s post here.
  • Crafting Additions. There’s a new tier of runes and vials, Planar dream orbs available for new slots, Planar crafted seals and earring runes and more! Check out a guide to RIFT 3.4 Crafting additions here!
    • Blinding Dream Orb Stats. The Dream Orb Stat Sheet has been updated with stat combinations of various tiers of belts, gloves and earrings for the new Planar Blinding Dream Orbs.
    • Congealed Dreams Recipe Change. Not mentioned in the patch notes, the Runecrafter Congealed Dreams recipe has changed from 35 Dust of the Void to 24 Nightmare Stars. (Thanks to Jaed for the heads up!)
  • No more Torvan Stout. Not mentioned in the patch notes, the approx. 20g Torvan Stout drink has been removed from RIFT Store -> Drinks. You’ll now have to get the 58g Moon Water drink which heals for 58k compared to Torvan’s 43k.

Note: The new Tier 3 20-man Mind of Madness is not slated for 3.4 release, but will be available in the 3.4 patch cycle. From previous information, there might be a livestream dedicated to previewing the new raid in a week’s time.

RIFT 3.4: Into the Wilds – 10/07/15
The Primalist Calling is now available on the RIFT store, and introduces an entirely new playstyle! Wielding leather armor and two-handed weapons, Primalists balance the forces of Fury and Cunning to unleash powers honed in the savage lands of the Planetouched Wilds!Berserker Soul: DPS
Leaving a wake of dead in their path, Berserkers slake their thirst for battle by drawing enemies into a whirlpool of blood and rending foes in two with cleaving strikes.Titan Soul: Tank
Much like the giants of myth, Titans use their raw Fury to withstand immense damage. Cunning Titans, on the other hand, can react quickly enough to preempt incoming attacks.Dervish Soul: DPS
Swift as the wind, Dervishes excel in face-to-face combat. Whirling into action, they make full use of both Fury and Cunning, swinging effortlessly between powers unlocked at each extreme.Preserver Soul: Healer
Preservers channel Fae healing magic to nourish allies in need. They invoke both Cunning and Fury, amassing and expending stored energy to unleash empowered spells one after the next.Typhoon Soul: DPS
The Typhoon uses sweeping attacks to assail entire groups of foes, rotating between Water and Air to build and unleash a wave of devastating attacks.Vulcanist Soul: DPS
Vulcanists tap the forces of an erupting Volcano to rain fire upon their foes. Fury is to thank for much of their damage, though preserving a state of Harmony yields advantages, too.DID YOU BUY THE WILDS PACK?
For players that have purchased The Wilds Pack, you will now automatically have access to The Primalist Calling with 6 souls! You also get an additional character slot, Minion: Zendi, and the Khar Warfront Announcer. Don’t forget to check your mailbox for Pet: Zendi and the Primal Spirit, a level scaling trinket!

The Wilds have returned to Telara! Explore the savage homeland of the Bahmi and discover the secrets of this land thought forever lost to the planes. Only the most powerful Ascended will be able to search these savage lands on the trail of Rahn Chuluun and Tam Daggerborne. Meet the King of the Wilds at his court in Shal Korva and visit Ovog Shrine, the spiritual heart of the his people. Along the way you’ll find quests, artifacts, events, and unique enemies await, as well as the new Rhaza’de Canyons 5-man dungeon as you strive to uncover the last of the hidden landscapes of the Mathosian continent. The karma of this ancient land is being consumed, and only the Ascended can save it.

The Epic Story of the Wilds
* Act 1: Into the Wilds – Available now! Seek out Uriel Chuluun at the Alliance Camp in Cosmic Steppes.
* Act 2: The Titan and the Tigress – Available October 21st.
*Act 3: Keeper of the Karma – Available November 4th.

The Assault on Bronze Tomb introduces a new gameplay mode to RIFT’s PVP! Each side takes a turn attacking and defending the three rooms of the Tomb, each with two control points. When a room is captured, the action moves deeper and deeper into the ancient structure. Each room has its own challenges, whether it’s fiery traps, spiked floors, or Ancient Defense Cannons that rain fire and destruction on your enemies… as long as they have power, that is!

Can you capture the ancient powers of the bronze tomb? But more importantly: can you hold onto your hard earned gains before they’re stolen back from you?

In the heart of the Planetouched Wilds lies the Amachidan Olidos, the dread Ascension Machine controlled by Teth Mortna. With this diabolical device he seeks to raise an army of Baac Abominations from the twisted remnants of the once mighty Red Sun Tribe. The remaining Bahmi tribes have already been overwhelmed, the tamed passages through the treacherous chasms barred by uncountable hordes. Now Telara’s only hope lies in those few who are able to brave the forgotten path to the machine known as Rhaza’de Canyons.

This all new five man Expert tier dungeon offers superior rewards and challenges to be conquered! Join up with four of your friends and put your might to the Teth!

“Do you dream about artifacts? Are they nice, happy dreams of you finding that one Epic Artifact you’ve been hunting for weeks? … Or are they terrible nightmares about getting stuck in some dreadful crevice, only to harvest the same shiny you got the last six times? I know I dream about them, especially after placing them for days on end. And let me tell you: they are not always good dreams. So now?

“Now? I’m getting my revenge. Get ready for NIGHTMARE ARTIFACTS.” – Dead Simon

As Telarans frolic through the planes happily looking for shinies, there is a chance to be struck by a poison. This poison will do a small amount of damage over time, but will have the added effect of allowing you to see Poison Artifacts that have an eerie green hue.

As you harvest, Poison Artifacts, know that each one has a chance to place an additional damage over time effect on you that will pile on more damage. But with more risk comes more reward: this additional debuff will allow you to see the orange glow of Burning Artifacts.

Burning artifacts are not only hot, they are the stuff of nightmares. Harvesting these can apply a final damage over time that will allow you to see the elusive and ephemeral Nightmare Artifacts. Take care, dear Shiny Hunter, the damage you are taking now is not insignificant. Keep an eye on your health as you search for these, and be aware that hunting Nightmare Artifacts can Poison, Burn and give you nightmares, while refreshing all three damage over time effects.

Any of these effects can be removed with a simple click– but then, you will no longer be able to see their associated Artifacts.

* The loot tables for Nightmare Tide raids have been adjusted as follows:
– Tank items are now 1 in every 5 drops, down from 1 in every 3 drops.
– Leather items and jewelry with dexterity as the primary stat are twice as common as other items to account for Primalists occupying raid spots and competing for dexterity loot.
* Raid bosses from the Rhen of Fate, Mount Sharax, Tyrant’s Forge, Hammerknell, and Intrepid Guild of Prophecy raids now drop an additional item.
– As part of this change bosses that previously dropped 1 each of two types of items now have a very small chance to drop 3 of the same type of item (e.g. Grugonim has a small chance to drop 3 chest armors).

* Players are now significantly less likely to be assigned to a Warfront that is close to ending.
– Although the exact cutoffs vary for each warfront, matches that have lopsided scores and are near the last 20% of their time limits will no longer be assigned new players.
– This should dramatically lessen the number of warfronts that players enter that are “already lost.”
– These cutoffs are deliberately loose to preserve as much potential for comeback wins as possible while still addressing the pain of queuing into what feels like an unrecoverable match score.
* Fixed a bug where some abilities healed more than intended during PVP.

* Upgradable items will now display the upgrade icon in the crafting window.
* The effects from the new flavor items created by Apothecaries and Runecrafters will now be removed whenever a PvP action is taken.

* New Dream Orb recipes have been added for Dream Weaving! We have also added new Dream Orb recipes for Planar Crafting! The planar crafted Dream Orbs can also be used on earrings, belts and gloves!
